It’s taken a while, but our Peace rose has finally caught up and flourished practically overnight. I knew we had a lot of buds and had already picked one off that had gone manky when I pruned the dead leaves off all of the bushes the other day, but I was certainly not prepared for the glorious show this afternoon.
It never fails to fascinate me how we have so much colour variety on one bush.
This was a double bloom from 2020 which I reversed and used for my 3TC logo this year.
This year we have similar contrasts (the red flower is a geranium having its second showing in our new flower bed)

Isn’t it beautiful?


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    And this is when I get a little envious and then the reality of having to prune and pamper kicks in and I’m good to just admire your efforts!

    • I have to confess we don’t do much to them apart from dehead the dead blooms. I’ve cut off all the mottled leaves and we intend to get some more stakes to support them though as the blooms are so heavy, they break
